Roger Federer is your winner of the 2012 Wimbledon Championships.

The Swiss player defeated Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 in a match that required play to be suspended momentarily while the roof could be closed to combat the heavy rain.

It has been an arduous road for Fed to return to his winning ways in the Majors with his last victory coming in January of 2010.

After his loss in the 2010 French Open quarterfinals to Robin Soderling, many critics and doubters began to believe that he would never win a Major again. This match broke the Maestro's semifinal streak in Majors (with the record being set at a hefty 23) and he continued to appear in a slump, only reaching one other Major final prior to today.

As we all thought he could, he extended his title as a legend by defeating Great Britain's great hope.
